Welcome to Sirius!!

Just a word of advice for you. As much as you like Hair Nation, flip around the stations and explore everything else that Sirius has to offer. You'll not only find other music to enjoy, but you'll also prevent yourself from burning out on Hair Nation. Sirius playlists can be pretty tight, so listening to one station continuously for many days in a row can get frustrating since you're bound to hear a bunch of repeats. But there's so much out there to enjoy that simply changing the station for a while will just increase your satisfaction with the service.

I'd definitely recommend giving Buzzsaw a try if you haven't already. They play the best "classic hard rock," which includes a bunh of the bands that you'll hear on Hair Nation. Classic Vinyl, Classic Rewind, and the Vault are some other favorites of mine if you like classic rock.

Again, welcome and enjoy the ride!!

I average 6-8hrs a day listening to Hair Nation and dont seem to find your "burn out" an issue. Great music is always fun listening too no matter how many times I hear it...

Rock on 80's

That's cool... I'm glad you're enjoying Hair Nation so much! I guess every listener is different, so what works for one might not work for another.

The repetition on Hair Nation is a pretty common complaint on these boards, so I just wanted to let the original poster know about some other stations that he might enjoy in order to avoid "potential" frustration.

Personally, I get frustrated with Hair Nation at times, but they play one of my favorite styles of music and it will always remain one of my presets I enjoy great music too, but I think that there's more great music that Hair Nation isn't currently playing which can make it even better. I think they do a pretty good job though, and as part of my regular rotation of channels, I do find it enjoyable.

Ha ha! I actually used to work at KNAC 105.5 in Long Beach back when this music was getting air play ('87-'91). Tawn Mastry, Long Paul (From Buzzsaw), and Dangerous Darren all worked there at the time, too.

If you love classic rock, you can't go wrong with Sirius.

I subscribe to both Sirius and XM, and Sirius definitely wins the classic rock matchup.

Yes I agree expecially with the Classic 80's main stream rock format with Hair Nation Channel. Very well defined channels that is clearly understood.

Enjoyable to listen to without all the flipping from channel to channel.

Enjoy

With XM I was always channel flipping to find music like Hair nation plays!

Yeah coming up on two weeks I am not even sure if Sirius offers any other channel other than Hair Nation. Not even sure if the Sportster will even change channels for that matter. Not even sure how to switch channels...

If you change channels let me know how the others are or if there are any?

Now back to my loud speaker, Cinderella is on.

Amazing is it not? When I had Xm I was constantly channel surfing. Torward the end, I almost threw my Roady out the window after one hour of listening to the Boneyard!
